Maryland Democratic Party Statement on Governor Hogan’s Budget Press Conference
   
Annapolis, Maryland – Governor Larry Hogan said today that changing state spending should be a top legislative priority, but failed to outline a plan for changing mandates. Maryland Democratic Party Executive Director Pat Murray issued this statement:
 
“Last year, Governor Hogan made deep cuts to public education, the state workforce, and services for the developmentally disabled, and raised college tuition. ‘Mandate relief’ is Hogan-speak for ‘larger class sizes’ or ‘higher tuition bills.’ In the absence of a real plan that the public can consider, the Governor is just making noise.”
